Baldies' Blog began originally in the UK by a 26 year old journalist with a blood cancer on a mission to inform the world about bone marrow donation.

He has since died, and I took on the cause of making cancer care more transparent for everybody.

Cancer is a disease that will touch everybody through diagnosis or affiliation: 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed and 1 in 3 woman will hear those words, "You Have Cancer."

I invite you to read how I feel along my journey and
how I am continuing to live a full life alongside my Hodgkin's lymphoma, with me controlling my cancer, not my cancer controlling me.

I hope that "Baldies' Blog" will prepare you to handle whatever life sends you, but especially if it's the message, "You Have Cancer."

Thank you for contacting your Congressional leaders to support the Federal Budget.

Because of your voice, and those of other advocates throughout NH, the first stage was successful.

Our work is not done!

The House and Senate are working out their differences and coming up with a final Budget Resolution.

It is expected the final votes will take place Tuesday and Wednesday (April 28th and 29th). The final budget, which includes input from both Republicans and Democrats, will include the option to stop endless delays in the Senate over health care and student loan reforms, allowing urgently needed legislation to pass with a simple majority vote.

The Budget Resolution is incredibly important - it provides a blueprint for Congress to craft 2010's federal budget
